The DALLMER Hoofshoes treat foals with a long pastern, a disorder encountered in newborn foals characterized by hyperextension in the fetlock joint.
With the help of the shoes, the fetlock stands erectly, the hyperextended fetlock-joint angle is reduced to a more normal mark.
Effect and application
For the DALLMER Flaccidity Shoes to have the desired effect, the space between the horse’s heels and the shoe’s heels should be filled with a quick-setting wadding and the foal should be lead daily on a leash on a hard, even surface.
After 10 to 14 days the hoofshoes are removed for hoof correction. If necessary, a new adhesive shoe is fitted
